"Compelling. . . . AimEe makes an engaging protagonist, vulnerable beneath her vintage chic clothing and sharp-witted exterior."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)
"Charming. . . . AimEe is one of those blithe spirits who can walk you through the city's historical streets and byways with their eyes closed."--"The New York Times Book Review"
"The buzz is partly about her heroine's hip, next-generation, cutting-edge investigations and partly about Paris, a setting of unrivaled charm."--"Houston Chronicle"
"Cara Black books are good companions. . . . Fine characters, good suspense, but, best of all, they are transcendentally, seductively, irresistibly French. If you can't go, these will do fine. Or, better yet, go and bring them with you."--Alan Furst
"Conveys vividly those layers of history that make the stones of Paris sing for so many of us.""--Chicago Tribune"
"If you've always wanted to visit Paris, skip the air fare and read Cara Black . . . instead."--Val McDermid
